House Hollowgale and Vassal House Aardynar hereby declares a state of readiness throughout Vinnagard's lands. Garrisons are once again replenished, patrols are doubled, training fields are manned by the hundreds. And again, the winds of war blow and eventually arrive to the Northern Lands. Logistical routes are laid out on maps, quartermasters argue in armories while heated discussions take place in the Jarl's Longhouse. From the small crowd, the newly appointed Archmage is tasked with orchestrating the on-goings while the Jarl herself leads the endeavor herself. With the closure of that day, and the timely arrival of the next one's morn, the banners of House Aardynar fly high and into the wastes they march to establish a forward outpost.
